Jeff Bezos, Tom Brady, Julio Iglesias, Carl Icahn, Ivanka Trump, Jay Z and Beyoncé have something in common. They all live on a 300 acre man-made island in Biscayne Bay just across Surfside and south of Bal Harbour.
Indian Creek was officially incorporated as a village in 1939. It is known for its exclusivity and high-end real estate. Each home is built around the perimeter of the island to ensure that all residents have a waterfront view of Biscayne Bay. In the middle sits the Indian Creek Country Club, the ‘ultra-exclusive private membership’ Indian Creek Country Club with an 18-hole golf course.
The island is ocuppied by some 85 residents. It is monitored by its own private 13-person police force and a 24-hour marine patrol.
In October, J. Bezos bought a waterfront seven-bedroom mansion for $79 million which adjoins his other mansion bought earlier this summer for $68 million.
